The Lockn’ Music Festival is set to return to Arrington, Virginia this upcoming September 10-13. Last year, the event hosted two nights of Phil Lesh with Friends, the String Cheese Incident, and Widespread Panic. The top three are returning this year, as well as some new acts to spice up the lineup.


Galactic and Soulive are heating up the jazz scene at Lockn’ on Thursday. These acts have been known to mix it up on stage together, and might collaborate at the festival.

Thursday also hosts a special set of music with The Doobie Brothers and the String Cheese Incident. The Lockn’ Festival continues its historic jam sessions on stage with this unique performance. Bill Kreutzmann is hitting the stage with: Dominic Lalli (Big Gigantic), Tom Hamilton (American Babies), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) and Aron Magner (Disco Biscuits).
